Canberra Festival Balloon Spectacular, Saturday, 13 March 2010 - 07.43AM

Get a bird’s eye view of Australia’s capital with one of three breath-taking adventures that will leave you feeling on top of the world.

The ultimate foodie experience

Make like royalty and arrive in style with an exclusive Canberra Helicopters experience.

Enjoy the thrill of a helicopter ride taking in sweeping views of the national capital, before touching down at the acclaimed Pialligo Estate Farmhouse Restaurant for lunch or dinner.

In addition to its award-winning restaurant, Pialligo Estate offers a destination dining experience featuring an onsite orchard, vineyard, olive grove and market garden.

The Pialligo Estate Smokehouse has also received a number of accolades including ‘Australia’s best artisan bacon’.

Float above the capital

One of the best and most peaceful ways to see the sights of Canberra is with a hot air balloon ride.

Rise before dawn and take to the skies in time to see the early morning sun fill the valleys and lakes with soft morning light.

Savour the serenity as you drift slowly over Canberra’s iconic national attractions. Did you know Canberra is the only city in the world where you will find yourself drifting over a nation’s Parliament House?

Once you’ve returned to the ground, celebrate your adventure with a glass of bubbly and breakfast at one of Canberra’s many delicious cafes.

For more information on balloon flights, contact Balloon Aloft or Dawn Drifters.

Get your adrenalin pumping

Enjoy the thrill of a once-in-a-lifetime adventure flight with Canberra’s new offering, Capital Warbirds.

Whether you’d prefer to simply see the sights, or tackle a scene from Top Gun, it’s totally up to you.  With Capital Warbirds, you have the opportunity to marvel at the Canberra region in a more sedate manner or roll, loop and turn your way through the best ride of your life.

Known as the Soviet Union’s “Pilot Maker”, Capital Warbirds’ Yak 52 aircraft was originally designed as an aerobatic trainer for students in the Soviet DOSAAF training organisation.

So what are you waiting for? Don’t miss out on this exhilarating experience with Capital Warbirds.
